I don’t want to miss out this week’s Anything Goes challenge at Paper Smooches. So here goes my take.
I used a diagonal striped vellum from Daiso (the thrifty Japanese store which I think are available also worldwide). I bought two packs of this vellum, one is this striped version and another has a polka dot design.
The pack has a number of colors in there but I used the teal one to match the Poppy sketch challenge that I’m joining in too.
Those vellum are just so pretty but much thinner than the other vellum available at online stores.
I die cut the frame and used a different paper in the middle for contrast. I then stamped the sewing machine and paper pieced the knobs and the machine’s body.
I also added a red thread hanging at the needle area just because 🙂 The vellum doesn’t lay as flat as the patterned paper so I added a red washi tape just to keep them down a bit in its place. Works like an accent don’t you think?
For the sentiment, I embossed it with black embossing powder. It curled a little bit and I just wish that vellum is much more thicker. Anyhow, I love how this card turned out, clean & simple just like my style 😉
I’m using a sketch from Poppy Sketch # 2 with a pop of color
